I’m very happy to witness this fusion of ballet, contemporary art and our very own folklore dances!

Thank you very much to our friends from the US Embassy for inviting us to become a part of this :)

 

U.S. Embassy Manila and the Cultural Center of the Philippines just the visit of an American contemporary ballet company, Trey McIntyre Project, to the Philippines. The group will work collaboratively with the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Dance Group and conduct master classes in ballet, modern dance and technical direction in Manila and Iloilo City during a ten-day visit to the Philippines.

Fellow Pole Kitten and blogger, Bambi in the audience.
We wanted to join the team’s workshop the next day but both of us couldn’t make it.
We got to witness the Trey McIntyre dancers be emersed with our Filipino indegenous dances.
As ballet dancers, they are so used to “pointing” their toes.  Good luck to them, most of our tribal dances “flex” the foot!
